Re: Adjusting from Water to Land

So, presumably this is a similar mechanism as sea sickness. I wonder if the same treatments would work (dramamine...).

Re: Adjusting from Water to Land

Lansickness, seasickness, all the same. It is motion sickness and yes, the same causes, and same medications. However, if you are landsick after THREE FULL DAYS ASHORE there may be some other problem like a viral infection in the ear causing the problem.

If your usual motion sickness meds don't get you past it in a day or two, I'd suggest seeing a doctor to eliminate any medical question, unless you'd rather just slog it out. If it is vertigo from a medical problem---that can be a serious problem that goes on for months and needs attention.

Re: Adjusting from Water to Land

the viral infections in the ear are horrible, My mom went through that last year.. lost all hearing on the right and now has no sense of balance what-so-ever. She can compensate with fixating on things.. but at night, she walks around like she is drunk.

Back to the original topic.. always called it "Sea legs"

Re: Adjusting from Water to Land

Too funny. We haven't spent all that much time on the boat yet (soon, I hope), but the boat head lasts for 3-5 days every time we stay overnight. I am getting more used to it, but as a runner, well, let's just say those post-boat runs are....interesting.
